How long does it take to bake a chicken breast at 400?

Bake chicken breasts in the 400°F oven, uncovered, 15 to 20 minutes, or until no longer pink. Let chicken stand for 30 minutes to cool. Individually wrap chicken breasts in waxed paper or parchment.

Do you cover chicken when baking?

You never have to worry about covering chicken while baking, as it’s fine to bake it uncovered, and once your chicken is in the oven, it’s hands-free until you need to check the temperature. So you can whip up a no-cook appetizer, side dish, or dessert if you’re feeling ambitious.

How do you keep chicken moist when baking?

Cook at a lower heat for longer to keep the chicken breast tender and juicy. Bake just until internal temperature reaches about 160º F, then let sit under foil to cook to a safe internal temp. Line pan or baking sheet with foil or parchment paper for easy cleanup. Olive oil keeps chicken moist and adds extra flavor.

  • I made some baked chicken breasts today for dinner. I used your recipe. I wanted to come back and say that they turned out great! We had them with a side of homemade mashed potatoes and steamed green beans. It was a simple yet satisfying dinner. I will be saving this chicken recipe to use again.
